2021 IRM Week
Thanks for joining us!
To contribute to the reflections on the 10th anniversary of OGP and leading up to the OGP Global Summit, the IRM Week focused on the latest Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) assessments through targeted launches, select country discussions, release of comparative cross-country data and blogs produced in collaboration with IRM researchers, partner organizations and thematic experts.
The week brought a spotlight on the latest findings on performance of OGP members, including highlights from the first roll out of the IRM Refresh. The week also offered a glimpse into new trends on priority themes in OGP, promising commitments from member countries and foreseen challenges and opportunities to implement them. The IRM released new data on action plan achievements and reforms that have gained traction and produced significant early results.
